Review by Cory Ferber

SOUND QUALITY: Very good to Excellent. This recording sounds like it was made from the back of the room in a tapers section. It has clear sound with audience noise in background. The guitar and drums are upfront in mix. The bass is contained and not distorted. Thank you Team 9!

REVIEW: DOWNLOAD THIS SHOW!

After playing a string of shows at the House of Blues, the Tribes first show at the Vic Theater blows the roof off the building. Although I was not at this show, I have been enjoying it immensely on CD. This is a show I will come back to again and again!

The first set and second set both showcase a well balanced set list for STS9. The band moves effortlessly between songs from the beginning of the career into their newer material from late 2003 and 2004.

The show opens with a loose SQUARES AND CUBES (remix03) that is given time to wander and find its way at over 12 minutes long. MOVEMENTS then moves us further along into the double speed jam of FOR MY PEEPS where things finally climax. After moving into some emotional territory with FROM NOW ON and ASAA, the band jets forward into a cover of NAUTILUS. After bringing up the funk, things go wild with MOONSOCKETS. This is a very interesting version with a long extended BOSSO PROFUNDO tease from 4:52 through 6:03. [See 3/29/2004 review.] The closing TOKYO features the new addition of a second section of the song starting at 5:06. It eventually fades into a long extended ambient jam to close the set.

The second set opens BLU MOOD, with a much extended version since returning to the set list in late 2003. TWILIGHT shows the spacey ambient sampling side of the Tribe in a new freaky light. I like the addition of a song like this to repertoire. It warned of the upcoming mayhem ahead on RAMONE AND EMIGLIO. In this version, Zach and Jeffree are locked in and lead the boys through a complex double speed jam (starting at 2:46) that sounds like they are slowly peeling back the layers on an onion, each one getting sweeter and sweeter. In the second half of the song, David Phipps lays down some extreme slow motion funk as Hunter lays down some signature rhythm guitar work.

BREATHE IN is always beautiful experience and this version doesnt disappoint. The band works its way effortlessly through the first section, a throwback to old style Tribe. The second section, starting at 5:20, is best described in one word: California! I think this song shows how the bands music changed and matured since moving to the left coast. The band takes their time as David closes the song with some beautiful piano work.

The show closes with what will be one of the best jams of the year, a sublime WATER SONG > DANCE, with a smooth seque that is almost unnoticeable! These two were meant to be paired together like peanut butter and jelly. The DANCE ends with some wicked intensified jamming smashed on top of the composition! After the song, David Murphy comments Thanks for pulling that out of us. A nice LUMA DAYLIGHTS encored closed down the show with the band giving it one last burst to the excited Chicago crowd.

I have never heard an Aud like this, the drums come through so crisp and murph isnt drowning everyone out. Check out Squares one of the best STS9 jams I have heard in a while!! Thanks Archive...

The recording sounds great! The show was SOLID!!!! (It was my fourth STS9 show) After the show I wanted/needed more STS9 to wiggle my booty to! Luma Daylight encore? Awesome... The bass is also recorded relatively well.. it doesn't distort or dominate the other tone... Murphy does some loud rockin shiznat on his Edirol bass synth keyboard (Tokyo for example) This is definitely one to add to the collection... THANK YOU CHRIS!
